Well I wouldn’t want to get caught unprepared in the Blue Mountains in winter but that’s just me.

IIRC Pratt lives in western Tennessee, in the Blue Mountains...where it can get both really hot and really cold. The worst of both 💩

I wish. At least the Smokeys are scenic. West TN has swamps and fields and fewer trees.

But also really hot and really cold. -14F to 104F in a yearly swing is not uncommon, and with tons more humidity than a desert swing of that magnitude. (Thus also we get to be in the ass end of at least two tornado alleys, maybe four.)

Even the natives didn't want to live here. They called it the land of shaking earth and sky. (Oh, right, the earthquakes, including the strongest in modern history.  :P )

I miss Knoxville. :dreamer:

Same. You can always in theory add more clothes, set oxygen free from consumables, use naturally generated body heat.

Sayz the guy that lives in a warm climate....  ::)

All still true in Mapleaska. Just moreso needed and more often. I don't envy you!  :buck2:
